Tribute

Jennifer Lee Liston, 52, of Fredericksburg, passed away after a courageous battle with cancer on Tuesday, October 31, 2023 at home with her husband, son, and dog, Murphy, at her side.

Jen was born and raised in Rhode Island and graduated in 1996 from Rhode Island College with a degree in Education. Always on the move as a Marine wife, she was devoted to her husband, Mark, for 28 years. Regardless of their state or country of residence, Jen always made a home for Mark and their son, Zachary. Upon her return from Asia, she completed a Masters degree in School Counseling and reentered the workforce at Parkside Elementary School, where she applied her sparking personality and positive attitude in helping young people and enjoyed being part of a new, rewarding community. 

Jennifer was a burst of positive energy that was infectious. She loved spending time with family and friends and making the most out of whatever the situation was.

Jennifer carried the same sense of selflessness and bravery which defined her life into her battle with cancer, refusing to be defined by it.

Jen is survived by her husband, Mark; and son Zachary and his lovely wife, Sophia. Zak is currently serving with the United States Army in Texas.

The family will receive friends from 5 to 7 p.m. on Monday, November 6, 2023 at Covenant Funeral Service, Fredericksburg, Virginia.
